Your Guide to Walking Adventures

Leader of the Year Awards 2022

We’re proud to have some of the best expert tour leaders in the world. Their keen expertise and unrivalled local knowledge have been setting our global adventures apart since 1974, and we’re delighted to bring our coveted annual awards back for the first time since 2020. This year, the Exodus Travels Leader of the Year Awards will acknowledge our guide’s outstanding dedication and hard work throughout the pandemic and since the world has re-opened – all based on feedback from you, our customers. And to truly celebrate this achievement, we’ve decided to award two Overall Winners, and two Hall of Fame leaders.

The winners will be given a prize of £2000, half of which will be given to the leader, and the other half will be given to a charity of their choice. Many choose to donate to our own Exodus Travels Foundation, as we are deeply involved in ongoing projects that give back to their local communities.

We’re excited to announce that the numbers are through, and the judges’ deliberations are in, so read on to find out our Overall Winners, Runners Up and guides who made it onto our Hall of Fame last year!

“Glenda was simply the best tour guide I have ever met. Her knowledge of her home country was off the scale. She never faulted in naming the birds, animals and reptiles we came into contact with. She worked non-stop to make everyone enjoy their holiday.”

“Sukman was our guide, our translator, our waiter, our nurse, our Nepalese encyclopaedia and our reservoir of serotonin during our trek. He worked from sun-up to bedtime, answering our myriad of questions with a smile.”
